Risto Öörni, Risto Kulmala, Doug Newton, Thomas Scheider, Astrid Kellermann

    Research output: Book/ReportReport


    Nine key European ITS services are described in the report: strategic traffic management for corridors and networks, incident management, traffic management of sensitive road segments, real-time event information and warning services, traffic conditions information services, travel time information services, weather information services, speed limit information services and co-modal traveller information services. The description of each service contains a general overview and specification of the organisation of service provision, data sources, information content and key requirements for the service in question. The data types required by key European ITS services are listed in the report. The data quality of the key European ITS services is also reviewed briefly in the deliverable. The European service cases to be evaluated in QUANTIS are described in the deliverable. These service cases are the information services of the Bavarian Traffic Information Agency, road weather information related services in Finland, RDS - TMC Plus service in Austria, and dynamic journey time information and event management in the UK. The report provides a brief overview on the concept of data quality and its management in the context of ITS services as well as a review of existing guidelines for data quality related to various ITS services. Finally, conclusions about the status of treating data and service quality in ITS services and their provision are given.
